I hope the venues are the same if and when they reschedule this. I was going to the Sage date and was really looking forward to it.

Old news, but it stil pisses me off that they'd decide to cancel an entire tour, to work on an album that's already at least a couple years overdue.

Yeah I think cancelling a tour is bad form by anyone's standards. If they were so desperate to get in the studio then why did they have it organised it in the first place?
